Global Established Multidisciplinary Sites (GEMS)

About the GEMS:

The aim of the Global Established Multidisciplinary Sites (GEMS) is to encourage faculty and students from across the Johns Hopkins University to work together to solve global health problems. Faculty mentors working on an international project that requires a multidisciplinary approach are encouraged to apply to develop a site. 

Sites are expected to host and mentor 3-5 students from 3 or more different disciplines to collaborate and develop a solution to the proposed problem. The Center for Global Health will provide financial support for coordination and for student travel. The Center will also be involved in project planning and execution. Each site is eligible to receive up to $10,000 in coordination costs and to up to $20,000 to distribute to students traveling to GEMS. Funding is for one year of support.
